Louise Bogan - Sonnet

Since you would claim the sources of my thought
Recall the meshes whence it sprang unlimed,
The reedy traps which other hands have times
To close upon it. Conjure up the hot
Blaze that it cleared so cleanly, or the snow
Devised to strike it down. It will be free.
Whatever nets draw in to prison me
At length your eyes must turn to watch it go.

My mouth, perhaps, may learn one thing too well,
My body hear no echo save its own,
Yet will the desperate mind, maddened and proud,
Seek out the storm, escape the bitter spell
That we obey, strain to the wind, be thrown
Straight to its freedom in the thunderous cloud

James Canning says: March 2, 2011 at 2:08 pmThe American poelpe, through their elected representatives sitting in session in Congress of the United States, have consistently sent the message that their are Partisans of Israel.Now that the local communal war between the European Jewish immigrants to Plaestine and the native Christian and Muslim Arabs there has been transformed into a religious war between Jews and Muslims; Partisanship for Israel means enmity towards Islam.If you listen to American Jews, it is quite clear that they consider Islam to be their enemy.Likewise for Israelis who have had to deal with that war in a much more initimate manner.Mr. Obama recognizes all of this and he understands that there is no margin in US fighting Islam. But he seems to be unwilling or unable to affect any substantive change in US posture among Muslim polities.It is clear, based on Internet sources, that millions of Muslim intensely dislike US and her policies; in Iran, in Iraq, in Paksitan, in UAE, in Sudan, in Nigeria.These are burdens of Partisanship in a religious war that the poelpe of the United States have clearly elected to carry.
